Killed by the Falling of A Tree
We regret to learn the death of Martha, wife of John B. Good, of North Lewisburg, Champaign County. During a severe storm of rain and wind on Thursday afternoon last, Mr. Good and his wife were returning to their house, and when within a quarter of a mile thereof, a tree was blown down and fell directly upon both of them. Mrs. Good was instantly killed, having been literally mashed to pieces. Mr. Good was badly bruised and strained, and was unconscious for some time. It is supposed that he remained in the fragments of his buggy near half an hour before he recovered his consciousness and got from under the branches of the tree. No one being near, Mr. Good managed to get within hearing distance of his brother-in-law, Willis Spain, who immediately repaired to his assistance. Mr. Good is likely to survive. - Springfield, Ohio Democrat Expositer, August 11th.
